Card cut intaglio print no.2

Intaglio, life, People, Printing, Textures

I cut a template printing plate using picture mounting board, gradually peeling off the top coloured layer to reveal the white beneath.


Then I used a roller and watercolour as a printing medium, applied a thin layer and allowed some of the paint to catch the white (can produce a textured effect).


A note to newcomers to printing … Remember that whatever picture you want to end up with will be the mirror image of the printing plate. Have fun 🙂

    1. Thank you! I did the mistake of forgetting to reverse lettering when I first wanted to print a message. Better to plan things out first as it saves a lot of unnecessary work 🙂
